Reds'Cool - Bad Story

Bad Story
by Marcos "The Jungle Guy" Garcia at 05 September 2013, 11:00 AM

Sometimes, there are bands that really can astonish us all, even doing nothing new, just using the most basic aspects of their style, releasing cool works, and it’s the case for Russian REDS’COOL, from St. Petersburg, that comes with this charming work, “Bad Story”.

Utilizing some aspects of the 70s, this quintet tries to breathe some fresh air on the style, and they got some pretty good results, with fine vocal work, guitars too catchy in riffs and solos with good harmonies, bass and drums weighting a lot with a work well done, and the keyboards do their work appearing only the necessary, but their strongest point is the chorus.

Michael Wagener (who worked previously with names like DOKKEN, MOTLEY CRUE, ALICE COOPER, and others) produced, mixed and mastered the album, so you all can expect a clean and heavy sound coming.

The guys really can impress a lot, even doing nothing really new, but they don’t fall in the style’s cliché as well, so, prepare to hear and sing at the second hearing their strong music, as the powerful “Bite” (some guitar riffs reminds old MERCYFUL FATE’s “Curse of Pharaohs” sometimes, and the vocals are pretty fine) and “Hey You” (a kickin’ ass Hard’n’Roll), “Love and Pain” (bringing to our minds something in the same vein of WHITESNAKE’s “1987”), “Feel You” (the bass and drums’ work is fine, along with guitar riffs), and the catchy “Upside Down”. But all tracks are really good, and these Russians have a lot of to offer to Metal music as a whole.

A fine piece, indeed, but the better results are when the band really gets heavy.
